I just enjoyed a wonderful lunch at Jaxson's. We were greeted with a bowl of popcorn to munch on while reading their huge menu. Portions were equally huge! I had the pastrami on rye while my dining companions had the wrap and the burger. We shared an order of onion rings which came on a metal... read more

Loved this place since the 70s and it hasn't changed a bit. The food was quick and hot and the atmosphere superb!

Great ice cream and great decor. Perfect for the family. Huge portions so bring an appetite. Try "the kitchen sink" if you dare.

After many years absence, we stopped at Jaxon's on the way to the Fort Lauderdale Airport on our trip home from the Keys. We weren't disappointed. As always the ice cream is the best and the setting brings back the olden days of real candy store/ice cream parlors. PS don't fill up on the free popcorn before the ice cream... More

This place is a landmark for Broward County/South Florida. I have been going here for over 20 years. One of the owner's family members used to bring gallons of great ice cream to our school. That is when the addiction started. Great homemade ice cream. Dozens of flavors. Located in a very old section of Dania Beach, near the Jai... More

This is my favorite ice cream parlor anywhere. Whenever I am in South Florida I try and make it to Jaxsons for a sundae. Their portions are berry generous so plan to share. Great flavors and tons of toppings.

This place is awesome. We are from Southern California and have NOTHING like this at home. The ice cream is delicious and the place is super cute. The only thing I'd warn about is it is EXPENSIVE. Don't get me wrong, the portions are huge and it is worth it but be prepared to spend about 10 bucks a person... More

I have been coming to Jaxson's for several years now with my family. I truly come for the ambiance and environment. The ice cream and food come in HUGE portions, but that is only supplemented with HUGE prices. Plan to spend a good amount of money here if you come with a group. The ice cream is good, but definitely... More

This was our first stop in town, and eliminated the need for lunch. We got there in the early afternoon, and there was a significant line waiting for a table. But the walk up winder was perfect, since it was so nice outside. The ice cream flavor selection was phenomenal. And the ice cream cones were huge! We each got... More
